Do you get to ride in wearing a cowboy hat at least? Your post reminds me of my grandfather. When he was about five or six years old he actually saw Buffalo Bill’s Wild West Show at Madison Square Garden. He was born in 1911. So this must have been around 1916 shortly before Buffalo Bill died. I remember him waxing poetic about this memory in 1973/74, when I was about eight or nine. It really left some impression on him, and thus on me. Funny what we remember, and what triggers our recall of those memories. Thank you.
